What we're about

A very casual group of Seattle women who get together to drink & learn about great craft beer, and just have fun with a bunch of great ladies! Any ladies, ages 21 - 101, are welcome! :) Mission: Give beer-loving women (drinkers, brewers, bartenders) an opportunity to meet other beer-loving women & share some good brews and stories in the process. Only a love of beer is required, not any level of beer knowledge. We'll learn and drink together!

All BN events are ladies only, unless noted (i.e. when we crash public events like festivals, bring whoever!)

Feel free to reach out to me with any ideas of events that we could do! Especially looking for breweries or bars owned, managed, or employed by awesome ladies! Reach me at SarahLEshelman@gmail.com

Back story: I founded Beer Necessities in Austin Texas in September 2014, a spinoff of my friend's group in Chicago. BN-Austin grew to over 1000 members with weekly events at bars & breweries all over Austin. We had a ton of fun, drank so much delicious beer, and made wonderful female friendships along the way. The group is still going strong, but I moved to WA and now creating magic again in Seattle! :D

Post-Holiday Bottle Share!

Hayes on Stone

Resolve to drink more beer in the new year, and come to a post-holiday bottle share! Bring a bottle (or two, or three) of your favorite beer and perhaps a snack to share, and we'll chase the January blues away by making merry with good brews and better company! We'll meet at Holly's apartment, or move to the complex common area if the crowd is too big.
